Page 8 February 11, 2010 IIrJ~_ ............................................. Well, the snow hasn't melted even though it's been a beautifully sunny week. Most mornings one can find many Manor residents tak- ing their morning strolls up and down the hallways. Everyone is waiting for the snow to melt and the temperatures to warm up so their walks can move outdoors. Thursday Mass began at 9 a.m. followed by exercises led by Eileen Buchholz, then shopping. At 2 p.m. we had a wonderful Tea Party to celebrate National Tea Month. We learned about tea, had scones, mints, and of course tea was served. Lorna Holzwarth decorated each table beautifully, taught us about different teas, and brought magic tea balls that bloomed into roses when placed into the water.

The community was saddened to learn of the death of Burns Abernethy on Tuesday afternoon. He was 102.

Other members of the fami- ly who had stopped in were Mitchell Fallgatter, who arrived Saturday from Milwaukee, Wis., Jim and Jan Abernethy from Denver, and Tate and Jody Cymbaluk from Williston. Rella Abernethy rode with Bobbi Hansen on Monday to take Mitchell Fallgatter to see his moth- er, LaDonna Fallgatter, on his way to the airport and home to Wisconsin.

Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

Water that is pumped into the wells takes on the surrounding ground temperature of 65 degrees. The water is circulated back to the hotel, and in the case of winter. is heated to warm up the building, or for the summer, cooled down. But either way the system saves energy because there won't be such a wide range of heating or cooling as would otherwise be needed, and the result is expected to be an oper- ational cost savings, said Beaudoin. The heating and cooling system is computer regulated, and eventual- ly TRMF employees will be able to check on the system through an Internet connection, said Hild. TRMF's plans include having the hotel open year-round. They have been brainstorming activities that could be held during the off-season in Medora Being open year-round is expect- ed to result in the creation of 10 to 14 additional full-time jobs, said Beaudoin.

Billings County State's Attorney Jay Brovold announced at a Feb. 2 meeting. Sherri Ross left the city audi- tor's position in May 2008 to move to Las Vegas, and has since moved to Arizona. After Ross left North Dakota, city officials ordered an audit of payroll records, covering the previous four years. Brovold told the council that ia factor in his decision is that Ross repaid the money, according to the unofficial minutes of the Feb. 2 City Council meeting. The city received the money in December 2009, which also included fund~ to cover the cost of the audit that was done after Ross left. ,f Another issue is that most of the transactions, except for two', are too old to prosecute. The Brovold also said he hadn't received enough information about the case, includ- ing a full BCI report, statute of limitations is three years. The two transactions that had the potential of being prose- cuted are from July and December 2007. The North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) had the role of investigating the mat- ter. Brovold also said he hadn't received enough information about the case, including a full BCI report. The matter of whether or not Ross would be charged led to a strained relationship involving City Council members and City Attorney Matt Kolling, and Brovold. in recent months. Mayor Doug Ellison said the matter was a learning experience. and that he realizes there was a lack of communication among the parties involved, according to the unofficial minutes. Kolling said there was no "vendetta," and if Brovold thought there was. he apologizes, according to the unofficial meet- ing minutes. Kolling said he gave Brovold all the information he had. Ross allegedly wrote $5,978.05 in checks to herself, while the city's accounting system says the money went to various businesses, the audit report issued by a Beach auditing firm showed. The audit report also noted an additional amount of "questionable payroll checks" totaling $4.493.23 were written to Ross. The five checks. ranging from $841.91 to $964.22, all were in the accounting system as payroll, but were moved from one accounting period to another.
